awesome razor! - I don't know why people are soo afraid of it though- its really easy to use and does a great job :)
My favorite razor now..
This is a great razor, you'll get a excellent shave.. Not the Beast everyone says it is . Prep your face and.remember let the weight of the razor do the work... I haven't used any of my other razors since I received it..
Exellent blade exposure and quality
Exellent blade exposure and quality construction
Great shave. No nicks, no weepers with moderate care. Close , efficient results. I can use more often than I originally thought. Great with a Nacet blade. Would like to see in a stanless steel version.
To start, this razor is not the beast you may have been told it was. It does deserve some respect, but when used with proper technique there's no reason to fear it. I've enjoyed several comfortable, close shaves with the R41. I didn't care for the Muhle blade that was included, it felt rather tuggy. When paired up with a Voskhod blade, however, the shave was excellent. Also, the finish on this razor is flawless. You'll be proud to have it in your den!
